USG is able to provide all of its Academy participants with a fully-funded Impact Weekend trip. These weekends are aimed at being an opportunity for the participants to put into action everything they have been learning throughout the USG Academy, as well as providing opportunities to grow both in Christ and professionally.
This past weekend, USG was able to fund twenty-four Academy participants to travel to Phoenix, AZ, for an Impact Weekend experience. Ezrick Sanders was one of the participants on the weekend. Ezrick is presently a Scouting Assistant with Pro Level Sports Agency LLC. Below is Ezrick's short testimony about his experience in Phoenix!
"Over the weekend, I was blessed with the opportunity to be a part of the USG Impact Weekend in Phoenix, Arizona. I was privileged to meet some of my peers from Team 32 of the USG Academy, the amazing staff, and some incredible sports professionals. We did some team building and strength activities within the group, participated in Bible Study and worship, toured the Phoenix Suns, Arizona Diamondbacks, and Grand Canyon University facilities, and listened to incredible speakers regarding their journey navigating the sports industry professionally and as a follower of Christ.
From my interaction with the speakers, staff, and team members, I learned how vital fellowship is in my journey. I’ve attempted to take this journey professionally and spiritually alone, but USG has helped me see how important it is to be a part of a community. I enjoyed playing Top Golf, the building a bridge activity, the scavenger hunt, breaking bread, and worshipping with the team. This weekend was a source of much-needed encouragement and the beginning of my involvement with the USG community."
